GOAL: Raise $8,000
100% of the funds raised by Justice and Mercy 2022 Run will go to support four GHI youth projects:
Adulam Ministries (Mexico), Youngsters for Christ (Kenya), IFAGE (Kenya), and Cornerstone Academy (India).
Located in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua Mexico the ministry is a place of refuge for 15-20 kids run by Juan and Laura Salazar since 2016. The Adulam Children's Home is operated by graduates of the Adulam rehabilitation ministry, and they continue to grow and thrive as we learn to meet the needs of the surrounding communities.
Goal = raise funds to cover staff salaries of $400/mo (or $20 for one child/mo)
Youngsters for Christ
Youngsters for Christ does outreach for children and youth in Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya, one of the largest slums in Africa, where 70% of the population is under age 30. To overcome inadequate nutrition, Samuel Njiru and his team run feeding programs for young children. And to ensure all youth can attend school regularly, the young ladies' program provides discipleship and sanitary supplies. Currently, they are seeing a great need for basic children's shoes to protect feet from debris in the streets.
Goal = raise $1050 to provide shoes and a meal to 70 children (or $15/pair of shoes + a meal)
IFAGE (Institute for Faith and Gender Empowerment) provides outreach in Kenya to prevent teen pregnancy and early marriage for vulnerable girls. With 10,000 Kenyan girls dropping out of school every year due to pregnancy and new HIV/AIDS infections, IFAGE is implementing the HopeAgain project to educate, counsel, and guide 100 pregnant teens. The objectives are to stop early child marriages, teach employable skills, or offer higher education to build a career, thus breaking the cycle of generational teen pregnancy.
Goal = raise $3000 to stop the cycle of early marriage and poverty for 100 girls (or $30/girl)
The academy provides a Christian education to impoverished children at a K-10 school in India. Having completed a new four-story facility, they hope to educate 1,000 students at this campus. Founders Thangboi and Kimsi Haokip believe a Christian education can help break cycles of poverty and violence in this southeast corner of Manipur, India, near Myanmar. Currently, the school is without outdoor playground equipment for students to use during recess. The children could all gain from the cognitive/social/emotional benefits of play.
Goal = raise funds to fabricate or purchase swings and slides
